Now that we’re 1-week away from Prime Day, Amazon is launching an early offer on its Echo Show 5 Smart Display, with Prime members being able to drop the price to $44.99 shipped. Down from its usual $90 going rate, today’s offer amounts to 50% in savings, beats our previous mention by $5, and marks a new Amazon low. Echo Show brings the Alexa experience you’ve come to know and love to a 5.5-inch screen. So on top of being able to summon Amazon’s voice assistant for controlling smart home accessories, it can also pull up camera feeds, watch videos, and more. Over 144,000 customers have left a 4.5/5 star rating and you can learn more in our hands-on review. Find additional details below the fold.
Update: Amazon now offers the Echo Show 5 bundled with a Blink Mini camera for $49.99. You’d typically pay $125 for the bundle, with today’s offer saving you 60%, beating the already-marked down prices of the pair by $20, and bringing the price to a new all-time low for the bundle.
If you’ll be looking to use the Echo Show 5 in the kitchen for assisting with recipes and measuring ingredients, spending a portion of your savings on Amazon’s adjustable stand is a solid idea. Not only will it help the Alexa display take up less space on the countertop, but it can pivot for helping you get a better angle. Over 15,000 customers have left a 4.7/5 star rating.
